The Band now plays at engagements throughout the Melbourne, and Victoria, but still with a concentration on the Mornington Peninsula.
A major event for the Band is still Anzac Day, providing solo pipers for RSL Dawn Services as well as playing for Anzac Marches for Bentleigh, Longbeach and Rye RSL’s as well as Frankston.
The band strives to combine playing well with the enjoyment of playing good music and providing entertainment for those who are listening and watching. We also enjoy social events together as part of band activities.
The band have recently added to their uniform with a distinctive red and green hackle to the glengarry and have also adopted green hose. A new specially designed band tie has been sourced which features the colours of the kilt.
The band kilts are of Red MacGregor tartan.
Anzac Day Parades through the years.
Mostly dry weather but sometimes wet.
Based in Frankston, part of the Greater Melbourne area, the Band wears the MacGregor tartan. Frankston is the major city on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. Frankston RSL Pipes and Drums are proud to be part of Frankston Sub-Branch of the Returned Service’s League.
The Band was formed, from the Frankston City Pipe Band, in March 1994. Initially it was a “social” pipe band in that it was not a member of the Pipe Band association and did not compete but did play at engagements in the Mornington Peninsula area.
